Could you "grow out" of having mental disorder?

It depends: Many disorders fluctuate spontaneously over time; there may be symptom-free periods (even for years). Some improve partially - e.g., some with adhd lose the hyperactivity, but retain concentration problems, as they age. Some personality disorders may improve over time.
